Picture Pages, Part II



M and took an unexpected trip to my parents house this weekend to pick up some photos that we left at the house after the Rita evacuation. It ended up being a very nice Saturday. We walked around the small town and had dinner at one of the few restaurant/bars on Main Street.


As requested, here is a portrait of M and I......




I am the tall and elegant T.exas M.artini on the right and M is the cool and refreshing mojito! Ha!


JJ wanted to know where I would take someone who came to visit. Well, I guess the obvious answer is the space center.

This is a picture that M took a few years ago that I have always liked. The streak at the top is the s.pace s.huttle making a rare, night time re-entry over H.ouston. The rocket is actually now enclosed in a building and being restored.

Maybe Baby very kindly complemented my photos, but I must confess that M always does a little color correction when I ask him to get photos from my camera to my e-mail. So, I cannot take credit, but I will pass on the compliment. I have enjoyed seeing everyone's pictures. It's funny how we share such intimate details of our lives with each other and yet know so little about the day to day occurrences that make up the bulk of life.

M goes in for his end of the lab work tomorrow and then I begin the countdown to our first visit with the RE. In the mean time, though, with school back in session and launch this Friday there should be plenty of distractions!

Now I know how you know Josh Simpson's wife :) The Space and Rocket Center is across the street from me, and we get to see the replicas every day. The shuttle is my favorite though, especially since I got to visit a company that was making pieces of the booster tanks. Massive!

Love the pictures....Mook has really been into the Mojito's lately! Thanks for telling me where you would take me if I visited (and showed me!)

Cute pictures. Hurricane Rita changed my life too. Coming back home from visiting my family in South Louisiana one of the "rest stops" has a space theme(it is near the J.C. Stennis Space Center), It's the only "rest stop" Jason will take without complaining :)

I like the "self-portrait!!" My hubby loves mojitos. I'm going to be thinking about what drink I am for the next hour, I'm sure.

Anyway, Good luck with lab work and your RE visit!

What a cute couple! Does that mean that your kids will be represented by little shot glasses?

Good luck with your upcoming RE visit. Hopefully the visit will answer more questions than it generates.
